The US Embassy in Ghana has announced that the selections for the 2024 US Visa Lottery, also known as the Diversity Immigrant Visa Program, are now available.

The program randomly selects people from countries with low levels of migration to the US and grants them a visa or a green card, which allows them to live and work permanently in the US and potentially obtain citizenship.

To check if you have been selected for the 2024 US Visa Lottery, go to https://dvprogram.state.gov/ and enter your confirmation number, surname, birth year, and authentication code.

  • If you have been selected, you will see a confirmation screen with your name and a case number. You will also receive instructions on how to proceed with your visa application.
  • If you have not been selected, you will see a message that says “Based on the information provided, the Entry HAS NOT BEEN SELECTED for further processing for the Electronic Diversity Visa program at this time.”
  • You should keep your confirmation number until at least September 30, 2024, as you may need it to check your status again or to apply for a visa if you are selected later.
  • You should also be aware of fraud and scams that may try to mislead you or charge you money for false information or services related to the US Visa Lottery. The US government will never ask you to send money or personal information by email or phone.

The US Visa Lottery is a free and easy program that does not require any special qualifications or skills. However, you must meet some basic eligibility requirements, such as being a native of an eligible country, having at least a high school education or equivalent work experience, and being admissible to the US.

The US Visa Lottery is a great opportunity for people who want to live and work in the US and enjoy its benefits and diversity. If you applied for the 2024 US Visa Lottery, we wish you good luck and hope you will check your status on the Entrant Status Check website.

Meanwhile, effective May 30, 2023, nonimmigrant visa fees will be revised upwards by the US Embassy in Accra. This means that B1/B2 visas for business and tourist travel, F visas for international students, J exchange visitor visas, and other visa classes not requiring a petition will increase from $160 to $185.

On the other hand, petition-based nonimmigrants who fall within (H, L, O, P, Q, and R) categories will pay fees of $205 instead of the previous $190.
